On May 18, 2013 Jace’s Mindseeker, a new rare blue creature card from Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming “Magic 2014 Core Set,” was revealed in a post by user TK-421 on MtgSalvation.com. You’ll be able to play with this alleged spoiler from “M14” in the “Magic: The Gathering” video game “Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers” for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Steam for PC, iPad, or Android tablets before the summer set is even available on retail shelves.
Jace’s Mindseeker – 4UU
Creature – Fish Illusion (Rare)
When Jace’s Mindseeker enters the battlefield, target opponent puts the top five cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard. You may cast an instant or sorcery card from among them without paying its mana cost.
Jace’s Mindseeker has several different interesting things going on at once. While six for a 4/4 flyer may be pretty mediocre, it’s the two-part “enters the battlefield” ability that makes this Fish Illusion creature so attractive.
You’ll be milling your opponent for five, growing your Consuming Aberration and potentially revealing a deadly threat like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for your Lazav, Dimir Mastermind from “Gatecrash” to copy. Should you decide to try and deck your opponent, a few cards to consider are Thought Scour, Curse of the Bloody Tome, Nephalia Drownyard, and Jace, Memory Adept.
What can really make Jace’s Mindseeker into such a powerful threat is if your opponent reveals an awesome instant or sorcery card from the top five cards of their deck. It’s like a blue Bloodbraid Elf. Will you end up with a Advent of the Wurm, Merciless Eviction, or Jarad’s Orders? One thing to note is that Jace’s Mindseeker gets really interesting when your opponent is playing with any of the new split cards, such as:
- Armed and Dangerous
- Beck and Call
- Down and Dirty
- Far and Away
- Flesh and Blood
- Give and Take
- Toil and Trouble
- Turn and Burn
- Wear and Tear
How will you use Jace’s Mindseeker?
